We Gotta Make It Through the Winter lyrics

We Gotta Make It Through the Winter

DANIEL
Lemme out, lemme out
Lemme just see her.
Lemme out, lemme out
Out of this cage.

GIDEON
Stuck in a barn with cupid's cramp,

EPHRAIM
How can we live like this?

DANIEL
Why don't we go and sample just one kiss.

CALEB
Lemme out, lemme out
Lemme get near her,
Gotta shout, gotta shout
Gotta get free.

EPHRAIM
Didn't make plans to sleep with you
Cuddle up by your ear
Wanted to smell perfume and not smell beer.

ALL
But we gotta make it through the winter
Or we won't get lovin' in the spring.
We gotta make it make it through the winter
Or Millie says we won't get a doggone
Millie says we won't get a doggone
Millie says we won't get a doggone thing.

BENJAMIN
I see Dorcas lyin' there in a siky gown

ALL
(spoken)
Gosh!

EPHRAIM
Bet my Martha's in the tub soapin' herself down

ALL
(spoken)
Wow!

GIDEON
Did ya see how Alice danced never seen such curves

ALL (except Gideon)
Yeah!
Stop it, stop it, stop it, stop it,
You're gettin' on our nerves.

CALEB
Lemme out, lemme out,
Lemme caress her

ALL
He'll caress her.

CALEB
Lemme go through the door fella's it's war.

DANIEL
Gonna bust in and stake my claim

GIDEON
What am I man or mouse.

ALL
We should be with our women in that house.

BENJAMIN
Lemme by, lemme by
Lemme get to her

ALL
He'll get to her.

DANIEL
Feelin' bad

FRANK
Goin' mad

ALL
Goin' hog wild

DAN
Thought I'd be squeezin' someone soft
Somebody soft and frail
Who woulda dreamed that she'd be big and male?

ALL
Oh!
We gotta make it through the winter
Or we won't get lovin' in the spring.
We gotta make it through the winter
Or Milly says we won't get a doggone thing.

FRANK
Nothin' would be half as nice as strokin' Sarah's hair

ALL
Yeah!

DAN
Touchin' Liza while her clothes are hangin' on a chair.

ALL
Yeah!

CALEB
Ruth'll sigh and beg for more when we begin to pet.

ALL (except Caleb)
Yeah!
Stop it, stop it, stop it, stop it
You got us in a sweat.
Yes!
We gotta make it through the winter
Or we won't get lovin' in the spring.
We gotta make it through the winter
Or Milly says we won't get any
Milly says we won't get any
Milly says not a doggone thing.

BENJAMIN, EPHRAIM, GIDEON
We gotta make it through the winter.
